once again this year. not as much so as in 2008, but a big advantage over governor romney. 59 to 37%. why do you think that was? >> you know, we were able to make strides among the youth, decreasing the president's lead from 2008. this year we carried 37% of all 18 to 29-year-olds. this was a big accomplishment for the republican national college commit. we had our largest field staff out. 63 field reps in 25 battle ground states and together they produced about 7.2 million live voter contacts and recruited 52,000 new cr's. so we were tremendously proud of our field efforts. and i think that's largely what you see reflected in those numbers. if you really break down those numbers, though, governor romney made big leaps and strides among the white male vote of 18 to 29-year-olds, but we still suffered as a party with young women and young minority voters. so i think that overall, this says to college republicans that we'll have to engage more with the communities and really refine our message when talking to those folks. >> rick: meghan, how much of it do you think is social issues?

spending cuts. >> it's coming from loopholes. i think we can. >> he criticized governor romney's plan based on the premise there is not enough revenue in the loop homes. he has agreed to the flame work, revenues or the table. we will give you $800 billion. that is great starting point. president has insulted republicans who are going out on the limb by wanting to be more pragmatic about this by coming to the congress which even among the most liberal writers in it is not a serious proposal. the reality it has to be some point spending becomes the conversation, not revenue. >> we have given quite a bit up. we have given up $2.5 trillion. >> you gave up 2.5 in budget gimmicks. things that were going to end anyway. >> boehner and cantor do not want to tax the wealthy donors. that is what it comes down to. are we going to balance this budget? it's the engine of the economy it's going to be middle-class americans -- >> i'm giving you an honest. >> heather: this has to be the last word in five seconds. >> if i gave you every tax increase you wanted, it would take us one time for the solutio

. but i do think it's awfully important that we not come out of this process and mitt romney is paying the same rate of taxes that he paid before this process began. >> gregg: i got to leave it that, i'm out of time. thank you both. >> thank you. >> heather: coming up, new controversy over the potential appointment of u.n. ambassador susan rice to be the next secretary of state. several republican lawmakers are raising red flags asking why ambassador rice wrongly insisted the deadly attack in benghazi, libya was because of opposition to an anti-muslim film. now a form attorney general, delving deeper into the ambassador's record. we'll speak with general judge jeanine pirro. >> what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo. as a consequence of the video the capital one cash rewards card gives you 1% cash back on all purchases, plus a 50% annual bonus. and everyone...but her likes 50% more cash. but i'm upping my game. do you want a candy cane? yes! do you want the puppy? yes! do you want a tricycle? yes! do you want 50 percent more
